Project duration: January 2013 - May 2020

EC Contribution: €34.500.000


The project:

To promote good governance and security in Nigeria, the project will support Nigeria's efforts in fighting drug production, trafficking, and use, and in curbing organised crime.



  • To support evidence-based policy formulation, and improve legislation and coordination;
  • To improve law enforcement capacity in drug control and tackling organised drug-related crime;
  • To enhance drug prevention, treatment and care services, adapted to Nigerian conditions.

The project focuses on where drugs and organised crime interlock, in line with relevant conventions, and with a balanced, human-rights-based approach rooted in international best practice. National capacity to tackle drug-related challenges will be strengthened by a multi-component approach.
